Elon Musk Blocks James Woods after Clashing with Actor over Decision to Remove Block Feature on X

Conservative actor James Woods was blocked by “X” owner Elon Musk after what appeared to be a clash over removing accounts’ ability to block other accounts.

“Block is going to be deleted as a ‘feature,’ except for [Direct Messages],” Musk said late last week. “It makes no sense.”

Woods responded to the news, writing, “In the midst of a libel suit, I was targeted by thirty trolls the defendant enlisted to harass me. X will be untenable for people like me, who are willing to share their identities. If he does this, I will have no choice but to retire from this site.”

“If [Elon Musk] removes the ability to block concerted harassment by trolls or organized political entities, how will ‘X’ be any different from Jack Dorsey’s horrid Twitter?” Woods later posted.

“Musk, whom I once championed, is only doing this to protect his advertisers anyway. Users of X are mere pawns to turn the site into an electronic shopping mall. The man I thought was a defender of free speech is just another greedy capitalist. Disappointing, but not surprising.”

Elon Musk responded to James Woods, writing, “Then delete your account.”

Woods later posted a screenshot showing that Musk had blocked him.

“You[r] prerogative, sir, which is exactly my point,” Woods wrote. “Have a nice day.”

Musk said he would use the “block” feature against those who want it to remain in order to prove a point.

“Pretty fun blocking people who complain that blocking is going away,” Musk wrote. “How does the medicine taste?”

Woods has supported Musk in the past, most notably over the release of the Twitter files showing how the company censored conservatives.

“I think Elon Musk has very possibly, very possibly saved America,” Woods said in a rare interview.

“I think the ship of state has been on a course, rivaling the Titanic. And I think what Elon Musk has done is spend a lot of money, like I did in that lawsuit against the guy who lied about me; you know, you spend the money because I’m going to do this because it’s so important to my survival and my well-being.”

“And I think Elon Musk loves this country,” Woods said.

“It’s clear that he does; why would he spend all that money on Twitter, this rat-infested app, you know? Why would he do that unless he could see its value? You have to understand something, you know, back when they had the power in Twitter, the Democrats were happy to say, ‘Well, it’s a private site. It’s not; it’s not like it’s the town square. You know, they can say whatever they want.’ They’re not saying it now that Elon Musk owns it, but it was, in fact, the town square.”

For just a little while the two were different, but now X = twitter.

A block feature was the most glaring and prominent factor in not needing to remove specific people from the site as individuals could manage that themselves. Removing that feature would put Twitter management at the center of censorship, it could again manipulate people into believing it was necessary “FOR THE GREATER GOOD” as they like to say.

I was excited when Elon bought Twitter, and expected great changes. Disabling Block puts the X in eXit for me.

Musk needs to be more concerned about the censor lovers he’s hiring in top management, if he is serious about free speech. Otherwise, his company is going to be same as it ever was.
